As promised last week, today we are sharing some activities to improve executive functions.

Activities to improve executive functions:

1. Bottle Caps

In this exercise, clients have to arrange the moving bottle caps in ascending order. By practicing this activity, they train three executive functions in particular: working memory, inhibition, and hemineglect. Sustained attention is also trained.

This cognitive rehabilitation activity to improve executive functions is also available for children under the name “The Little Glutton“, a game in which children have to eat all the cookies, though of course, in strict numerical sequence.

2. Word Association

This worksheet trains reasoning skills. Clients have to be able to match words that are associated to each other. Like other worksheets at NeuronUP, “Word Association” includes several levels of difficulty ranging from basic to advanced.

Intermediate Level

Listed below is an intermediate level worksheet.
